11 words

roasted butternut squash with caramelized onions, gorgonzola and crispy fried sage.

just let that settle in for a moment

i have been craving this dish every second of my life since my mom made it for the first time a few months ago. i can't stop thinking about it. i can't stop dreaming about it. i think i might have a problem. but it's not my fault that this little combination of salty, sweet, buttery goodness is the greatest thing that has ever been put together since, since... i don't know when.

Ingredients:
2 cups butternut squash (cut into 1/2 inch cubes) *if you live near a trader joes, just save yourself the trouble and buy the pre-cut butternut squash, trust me.


1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion (sliced)
1 clove garlic (chopped)
1 tablespoon butter
1 handful sage leaves
1/4 cup gorgonzola dolce (crumbled)

Directions:
1. Toss the butternut squash with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.



2. Roast the squash in a preheated 350F oven until tender, about 30-40 minutes and set aside.
3. Meanwhile, heat the oil and melt the butter in a pan.
4. Add the onion and cook on low until caramelized, about 40-60 minutes.
